Project Description

All proceeds will support the agency’s back-to-school campaign which provides school supplies and materials for low income, at-risk children in the Jacksonville community. Unlike most children that attend Duval County schools, the children that benefit from River Region’s back-to-school campaign often begin the new school year without basic supplies such as pencils, paper, notebooks, backpacks, flash drives, poster board, etc. For some children, not having these essential items often contributes to incomplete assignments, overdue projects, disruptive behavior and even school absences.
